If you have split up from a long-term relationship, friends and family will often ask if you want to get back together with your Ex. Whatever happened with your last partner, whether it was a rollercoaster ride from hell or a happy relationship, you may not want to give away too many details.
People don’t need to know that you were tired of your boyfriend farting in his sleep or the other inane details of why the relationship broke down. When you share your intimate relationship details with a nosy Aunt Nelly or the office gossip, there is a pretty good chance people will be having a laugh and discussing your private life.
There is a famous Les Brown quote:
Don’t tell anyone you’re problems. Eighty percent of the people don’t care and twenty percent of the people are glad that you have them.
